Jayne Ozanne writes in Pink News that Penny Mordaunt is "by far and away the best" candidate and that Jayne believes Penny "is a true champion of all the LGBT+ community". Which is just wrong. She isn't our best candidate, she's yours Jayne. By which I mean semi-wealthy white cisgender queers. She's got your back, and judging by your endorsement of her after her tirade? Clearly you're fine with sticking the knife in ours if it means you don't have to look over your shoulder so much any more.
Before Maya Forstater's case a lot of things were up in the air and every single lawyer, legal expert and asshole with a website like myself was just guessing about how things would work or play out. That's sort of what law is in general. But now we actually have some definition on the playing field, we're starting to see the rules take shape and even despite a win; I don't think the gender criticals will be happy with the results once they set in.
There have already been attempts from transphobes to blame this on trans people. We have seen comments wherein people take aim at gender neutral language, such as "people who can get pregnant". The argument being that not using the word "woman" has made things more difficult, confusing and harder to argue. However I haven't used the word "woman" in this piece even once, and don't plan to. It's not only women who require access to abortions and abortions should be accessible for all those who need them.
With former Prime Minister Boris Johnson forced into resigning after countless scandals and horrific behaviours, Tory PM candidates transphobia card is being played by all but one.
The trans community have pointed out the LGB Alliance's use of virtual offices for their 'official address' as somewhat sketchy before. With the leak of LGB Alliance's 55 Tufton Street address before, it seems we were right to be skeptical.
Helen Joyce's comments on the show recently caused a massive controversy as she argued to "reduce" the population of people she found to be "damaged" and "difficulties for a sane world". This tirade included all transgender people, whether they were "happily transitioned" and even those who had detransitioned.
Dear James, Perhaps you would indulge me here a little as I try to guide you on an issue you seem to be having some problems with – the ‘transgender debate’.
A group of women were kicked out of a Cardiff bar this weekend with some of them also being detained by police. This due to allegedly harassing a transgender woman.
I see this for what it is, a cynical political move designed to support the (now successful) ousting of a crap Prime Minister by those like Mike Freer. It has nothing to do with constituents, supporters, LGBT+ people, diversity or Margaret Thatcher's evil bones. It has everything to do with playing the game and making sure there's still a Tory party after the end of all this scandal. All so they can all keep their nice cushy jobs blowing smoke up each other's arses and paying lip-service to their job titles.
Several mainstream media publications have repeated the lie that the NHS has advised "most trans children are just going through a phase", including The Times, The Telegraph and Sky News.
